COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark amber wheat beer features fruity and spicy aromas galore. Significant strength underlies the pleasant citric appeal of this bock beer. Redolent with the flavors of harvest fruit, Moonglow typifies the traditional weizenbock-style so thoroughly enjoyed throughout Bavaria. Left unfiltered, its unique yeast strain gives Moonglow a radiance all its own.

Aroma of clove, banana, gum, pepper and light herbal hops. Appearance is cloudy, murky brown with frothy tan head. Flavor matches the nose; there is a little chocolate present and definite gum. Palate is very bubbly and sticky. Very nice.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Very waxy, meaty nose, some banana and tomato off notes. Flavor is closer to stout, smooth body, light roast and chocolate with faint sugary fruit in the finish.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle at a winter beers tasting at Norma Jean. Cloudy brown with a frothy off-white head. Fruity aroma of banana, a bit of bubblegum notes and a bit of caramelly malt hints. Sweetish flavor, wheaty and yeasty, with some caramel, some fruit esters and some spiciness towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

callmemickey (2727) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Reviewed from notes (2007). A: Rich red/brown body with a moderate tan head S: Spicy banana blast upfront... this beer smells fairly sweet with a hint of alcohol. T: A natural, fruity sweetness... bananas and apples are most noticable with a bit of caramel for balance... you feel the ABV but you certainly don’t taste it M: A full body is helped by lively carbonation O: Very drinkable considering the malty sweetness and the high ABV.

Tastes like a tart doppelbock. They were trying to imitate Aventinus and miserably failed.

Bottle, many thanks to my Secret Santa. Hazy amber color with small white head. Aroma of banana, apricots, honey. Taste, banana, yeast, clove, cinnamon, port. Nice bittersweet finish. Nice Weizenbock.

On tap at Mahars. Not my favorite style, but this was a good beer. Had a nice clean flavor with nothing too strong to turn you away, a great session beer.

Aroma- Slight spiciness, bubblegum, and wheat Appearance- Nice orange/rust color Taste- A nice spicy complexity, doughy, molassesy, with a nice, not overpowering bitterness that lingers. Overall- I remember drinking this when it was Sunset Wheat. It’s a great beer to sit around and sip on, but not one to have several of. The spiciness can become too much for me after drinking two bottles in a row.

12oz bottle from Blake’s cellar. This may have been last years run, at least that’s what my buddy Blake said. Dark brown color with some "floaties" around, making it cloudy. Nice fruit spice in the aroma and flavor. Very easy to drink and the ABV seems masked very well.
